DeForest Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Riverton, WA
"We are the owners of the Yum Yum Farm in Iowa. We immediately connected with John and he was truly our Sherpa throughout the conception, design, and construction processes. He translated and expanded/enhanced our ideas into a wonderful home that continues to reveal itself to us and feels more like a part of our family than the shelter in which we live. We strongly recommend a conversation with DeForest architects before making a final decsion!"

Lane Williams Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Riverton, WA
"Lane Williams took our dated and very tired looking 1960’s one story, pitched roof home with a daylight basement and transformed it into a beautiful modern home with strong horizontal and vertical planes and cantilevered masses. Lane's vision for the house really came together when we decided to spend the money to expand the carport to two cars. We were thinking it might not work, but when he showed us the renderings we both just thought wow – it balanced everything out and got us a look that was spectacular. The finished house got great reactions from the neighbors, and it still thrills us when we overhear the bicyclists as they zip by saying ‘Cool House!’ http://coop15.com/images/house_shows/Enatai/Enatai2before.jpg http://coop15.com/images/house_shows/Enatai/Enatai3.jpg http://coop15.com/images/house_shows/Enatai/Enatai1.jpg"

Coates Design Architects Seattle
Architects and Building Designers in Riverton, WA
"We've toured the residential and commercial projects created on Bainbridge Island by Coates Design, and have followed their work for years. Our office was in the same building, and we often stopped in to learn more about their projects. We've always been impressed by their great architectural sense of aesthetics, and their ability to create innovative work that blends well into the surroundings of the project location. Very professional, very pleasant and very accomplished."

Garret Cord Werner Architects & Interior Designers
Architects and Building Designers in Riverton, WA
"When I was looking into renovating my condo, I was a bit overwhelmed with the choices and all the different perspectives that people had for my design project. After sifting through a couple of firms I kept coming up short on finding the right one who understood my design aesthetic and could meet my budget and time frame. I was referred to Garret Cord Werner by a good friend of mine at a party and after reviewing his firm's work online, I decided to make a call and see if it was a fit. After contacting Garret, I was immediately reassured that I could have a modern and contemporary space that was actually livable and functional at the same time. Garret and his team provided expert advice and guidance when selecting the final design, sub-contractors and finishes. I can't tell you how much I appreciate my new home and would highly recommend Garret and his firm to anyone."

FINNE Architects

"Nils Finne has a deep knowledge of design, a modern appreciation for craft and detail, and an uncanny ability to design homes with a fresh spirit and vitality. We've worked with Finne Architects on an extenstion renovation and a new build in a remote location, and in both projects we were impressed with Nils' ability to carefully listen to and translate our needs and values into the homes we love today. He's a consumate professional: on budget, on time, incredibly responsive, and always a pleasure to work with. "

Prentiss Balance Wickline Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Riverton, WA
"Professional, friendly, skilled, clever -- that's how I would describe the experience of working with Prentiss Architects. In any design project, problems come up, but it is how the problems are solved that is telling. We walked away happy. We are proud of and are still in love with our house in the San Juan Islands, 10 years later."

PRDG architecture + design
Architects and Building Designers in Riverton, WA
"We are about to embark on our 2nd renovation project with PRDG. We fully enjoyed the gut renovation of our 70's contemporary into a modern ski house on an uphill acre in NY's Long Island. Our next project will be a 2nd floor addition with roof deck. We wouldn't think of another architecture firm for the undertaking with our pleasant experience with PRDG."

How do I find the best Riverton architect for my home design project?

It is best to hire a home architect who will be involved in all phases of the design process, from the initial concept to the completed construction. The architect is often the first person you will hire for your project. If necessary, they might also help you select and hire Washington subcontractors, which can include the builders, engineers and landscaper. Interior architects are also involved in negotiating contracts for all involved participants. It is for these reasons that it is extremely important for you to have a good relationship with the Riverton residential architect you hire. He or she can be the tie-breaking vote between you and the general contractor and can be your biggest advocate during the construction process. Different architecture firms in Riverton, WA provide different services, so the scope of the work can span from pre-design environmental impact studies to selecting furniture and finishes, depending on what your specific needs are.

What sort of process can I expect from a residential architect?

As far as the process goes, the architecture firm or individual that you choose will start with concept drawings and finish with construction drawings and documents. Some firms even design with 3D renderings and videos, but that should not be assumed. There should be plenty of meetings between you and your building designer until you have agreed upon a design that you are completely happy with. Always keep in mind that the designer will have building codes to follow, and likely pre-existing design limitations when dealing with a remodel, so while they might not be able to execute your exact ideas they always have your safety and aesthetics in mind. One of the most important duties of a residential architect is to serve as managers and supervise most aspects of construction, as well as facilitate communication between all other contractors, so you can expect them to be present throughout the entire building process to ensure everything is executed as planned.

It is very important to hire the right professional for the job. Remember that the most well-known or established designer might not provide the best architectural services for your needs. It all comes down to the individual project. Research and ask people whose work you like for recommendations. It's important to have somewhat of an idea of the style of house architecture that you prefer, as well as the amount you would like to spend. Residential architects in Riverton, WA are natural problem solvers. They will assess the entire situation and help you to solve your problems too. Don't settle for a single company too early. Call and interview a few. Make sure that you feel like your personalities will mesh well and that you like their professional perspective.

Questions to ask prospective Riverton interior architects:

  • What is your fee structure?
  • What does the cost include?
  • Do you have professional liability insurance?
  • Can you handle my special requests (ADA, LEED etc.)?
  • What types of renderings (3D, video, illustrative) will you produce?
  • What is your experience with similar projects?
  • When do you expect to start and be finished with the project?
  • What do your services include? (It's best that the services are until construction is completed.)
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Would you say your work has a defining style? (This is important in case the architect's personal style will interfere with your vision.)
  • Will you help with hiring a general contractor and subcontractors?
  • What do you estimate the cost will be?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any complications you foresee with this project?
